What a lovely place to visit! Our river front unit was so beautiful and tranquil.Rooms are rustic with a real home feel. Kayaking and hiking trail to waterfall a must ! Just one "complaint" was with the breakfast dining room. Busy painting while we wanted to have breakfast. Otherwise I will definately recommend it.

The setting is fantastic, however, this is an old lady in serious need of a revamp. The rooms are neat and tidy, but there is no air-conditioning and we froze our butts off. The breakfast was very disappointing, in fact it was the most disgusting breakfast ever.

I visit there at least 3 times a year. My wife and myself were pleasantly surprised with the renovations taking place and room 42 is awesome. Beautiful new decor in the room and the view is just spectacular from that room over the river. The food was great. Very good chicken curry and excellent sirloin steak cocked the way we... More

We enjoyed our stay. The rooms were lovely and we especially liked that we were able to walk out to the river from our rooms. There is no lack of activities at the resort itself - tennis, swimming, canoeing, paddle-boating. Just a few minutes drive and you find plenty of walking and hiking trails. The breakfast was great.
